My g grandmother, Melaura [aka Laura] Sanders, was born about 1876 in England. She immigrated to the United States in 1881. On 04-Aug 1894 in Jefferson Co, Reynoldsville, Pennsylvania she married George Sylvester Barrett, birthdate 28 Dec 1870 (born in Jefferson Co, Reynoldsville, Pennsylvania). George was trained as a printer, but spent the years before his death working the coal mines.

They had three children, all born in Reynoldsville:
Joseph Curtis Barrett, b 24 Feb 1896 d 14 Dec 1961, Cattaraugus Co, Salamanca, NY
Herbert J. Barrett, b abt 1897
Ann E. Barrett, b abt 1899

George died on 21 Oct 1899.
Laura remarried John Shelvey,(b abt 1864) 13 May 1901, Jefferson Co. Brookville, Pennsylvania.

Looking for Laura after marriage to John Shelvey and whereabouts of all children she had with George and any she may have had with John. I have not posted this query on any other message board.
